Product Description

A Mother’s Story -How my husband was murdered, a fight with cancer,and left to raise two children. I was alone, broken and hurting, losing all my possessions. Even homeless, living in my car from one parking lot to another, afraid of losing my children.

Thinking I picked myself up, I went to school, started making good money only to find myself in an invisible prison. A prison of rejection, drugs, money, and a web trapping me tighter and tighter. Never facing betrayal, or rejection. Betrayal comes in many forms and if you’ve lived for any amount of time you’ll find yourself at some point in life in a place when someone you trusted or loved betrays you. Two things happen, you become bitter or better! When betrayed it does hurt deeply, and most of the time you did not expect it when it hits you. First you’ll go through a flood of emotions.

Be careful you don’t want to be led by your emotions; they change from one day to the next. Then you may want to defend yourself, DO NOT defend yourself. Hold your peace and your tongue. Then you must watch for anger it’ll come to visit you. Betrayal loves to turn into a state of anger. Stop, anger will not change the fact you were betrayed, nor will it make you feel any better in the end.

Read how I ended up in a deep pit without notice. Broken, shattered, and restored by Grace. I felt I needed to share my story that is why I wrote this book. When I received the news. “Your husband is laying in an alley drunk.” I knew something was really wrong, only to find out he was murdered. What do you do in such a time? Fall apart? Give up? Read my book!

    Life Can Be Hard
    Sk Reidel: Sometimes it is hard to imagine what some people go through in life. Dr. Luauna gives an honest and straight forward account of her life before she became a believer. It is raw, honest, and if you have an ear to hear very informative about what not to do! She allows the reader to see “life.” A very important illustration that can be helpful to anyone struggling in their life with anything. Please do yourself a favor and tell others you know who are struggling to read this book!

    A Must Read
    Teila Tankersley: Dr. Luauna Stines, is a powerful preacher and speaker. Her book is based upon real life events and is a must read. Her story is a testament to the grace and power of Jesus Christ.

    I met Luauna when she first became a Christian and I can tell you, she has had a rollercoaster of a life. I’ve read her story and can attest that this girl was running high with the devil and had no desire to turn around, that was until God moved on her life.

    She is as real as they get and in her book she doesn’t hold anything back. If you need a book that will inspire you and minister to your heart, then this is the book for you.

    It would make for a powerful gift. Order it, download it and enjoy. God doesn’t play favorites and what Christ has done from Dr. Luauna, He can do for you.

    Order it today and when you’re finished reading it, upload your review. It is an easy read and a read that will stir your soul.

    Couldn’t put the book down!
    Scott : DANGER DANGER DANGER!!! If you want to use this book as some casual bed time reading to put you to sleep, this is not the book for you. I am not an avid reader, but I could not put the book down. I kept telling myself, “ok, just one more chapter and then I will go to sleep”. I kept telling myself that until I finished the book! Not much sleep that night, but it was well worth it.

    What an AMAZING Story!!
    Dora Juslin: Dr Luauna’s journey from addiction, sin, heartbreak, etc. to the triumph of finally finding Jesus was such an amazing story! I cried, laughed, cried some more and cheered her on. It was so refreshing to read how Dr Luauna went through the same emotions, problems, issues we ALL go through and because of our Lord and Savior’s Grace, she overcame and is now a MIGHTY WOMAN OF GOD!!!

    I DEFINITELY recommend this book a thousand fold!

    Rescued by Jesus.,
    Gail Prout: Dr. Luauna’s story telling gift brings out the heart wrenching details of her life in her youth. Get ready to grab a box of tissues as you are taken from your position as a reader to stand next to her as the police tell her that her husband has been murdered. Or when she realizes she is hooked on “happy dust” which is anything but happy. You will be sharing her despair of knowing she has to raise two children alone. Jesus to the rescue!
